party, the gentlelady from san francisco, ms. pelosi. ms. pelosi: i thank the gentleman for yielding. tonight we come to the floor to pay tribute to two people, barney frank and john olver, who in many ways could not be more different. they are the same in this respect, they have made both of them important marks on the congress of the united states. what's special about them is that they are so different but in their shared values, in their effectiveness, on their knowledge of the issues and their ability to persuade our colleagues to join them in a vote, they share that talent. especially those values representing massachusetts in the congress. i had the privilege of serving with john olver on the appropriations committee. so i saw firsthand and very close up his extraordinary mastery of the facts of the substance before us and his political astuteness to find a way to get the job done as the chairman and ranking member of an important subcommittee of appropriations, transportation. he -- better known as h.u.d. he and -- he's a cardinal, a cardinal. that's what they call them. card

is mentioning in all of these tragic shootings, including the law office in san francisco, they were all gone- free calzones. -- gun-free kill zones. the gun is not the common denominator, but these allow any madman or criminal with any kind of fire arm to come in and shoot as many law-abiding americans as he can. this proves not that the gun is the problem but that gun-control itself is a failure because there is no stronger form of gun control than to say no one is allowed to have a gun at all. otherhat's exactly the common denominator for all of these tragic occurrences. not one person in the mainstream media has pointed it out to their viewers because it does not sit with their anti-bond big it should -- anti-gun bigotted nature. it is being marketed shamelessly in the mainstream media. i swear these people are trying to introduce a new form of bigotry and to american culture. gun-control is the new racism. cnn in particular should be ashamed of itself for what it has done this week on trying to manipulate and inflame the prejudices against guns and gun owners. it's despicable and it's a

practice in both san francisco and sacramento. i can attest to his prowess as an attorney because on one very interesting occasion, he represented me. [laughter] >> on a speeding ticket. [laughter] >> and got me off with a minimum fine. from 1965 to 1988, justice kennedy was a professor of constitutional law at the mcgeorge school of law, the university of the pacific located in sacramento. and a point of particular pride of mine is the fact that he provided valuable support to then governor ronald reagan on a number of legal issues as a volunteer lawyer. justice kennedy was appointed to the united states court of appeals for the ninth circuit in 1975 where he served for more than 12 years until president reagan nominated him as an associate justice of the u.s. supreme court. he took his current seat in 1988. in nominating justice kennedy to the supreme court in 1987, president reagan remarked that his career as a judge in the u.s. court of appeals for the ninth circuit, as a constitutional law professor, and in private practice was marked by a devotion for the simple, straightforward, a
